Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Colback inclusion v Norwich
By Dominic Toner
Jack Colback has been named in Newcastle’s starting line up against Norwich – and the club’s supporters voiced their concern on Twitter with the decision.
Rafa Benitez has made two changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Aston Villa at the weekend.
Colback and goalkeeper Karl Darlow have come into the side for Isaac Hayden and Matz Sels.
Newcastle revealed the team news on their official Twitter account ahead of the Championship clash against Norwich.

The Magpies have started the new campaign in indifferent form given the money spent in the summer with the north east side currently sat in ninth place with 16 points.

Their opponents Norwich are currently second in the division and can go to top of the league with a win on Wednesday night against Newcastle.
Benitez will be hoping that midfielder Colback can have a positive impact on the game at St James’ Park.
Colback, 26, has made six appearances this season and is still searching for his first goal.
Newcastle supporters took to Twitter to express their frustration with the central midfielder’s inclusion in the side.
Get beat tonight. Colback ain't good enough

Colback starting over Hayden is like asking for a full English breakfast and someone giving you beans on toast instead, doesn't work! #NUFC
